How To Displace – Wrap A Texture
This tutorial is actually pretty cool and will show you how to use the displacement tool,we will use it to wrap a texture onto another object.
So the two images I have used here are from a website called publicdomainpictures.net
So here I want you to select around your object.
Then inverse the selection
Once the selection is inverted, then delete the background.
Deselect everything, then goto
Image –> Adjustments –> Levels
And we want to change the image so we have a contrasty image, strong white and blacks, we don’t want washed out tones.
Save this as MAP.psd
Once saved we now want to Step Backwards / Ctrl + Alt + Z
Now with our texture layer at the top and selected
Click on Filter –> Distort –> Displace
Choose some values to displace the image by, i find that anything between 10 – 20 will do fine, you will need to experiment with your images.
Go to where you saved MAP.psd
Once the layer with the pattern has been displaced, press Ctrl and click on the layer below of the flower, then click on Layer mask.
And you will get the below layers
You can then paste the texture into the background
And apply some Gaussian Blur
Filter –> Blur –> Gaussian Blur
Or you can replace the background with something else like below ..
